Dhulikhel has been for centuries an important trading center on the commercial route linking Nepal to Tibet. Since time immemorial, people of Nepal travel to Tibet to bring home salt and gold. Likewise, the Tibetans every year with their flocks of sheep enter into Nepal during Dashain, the greatest Hindu festival. They use to purchase chilies and other daily necessities in Nepal and return to their homeland. In those days, a whole day walk from Kathmandu to Dhulikhel was comfortable for Tibet trippers with easily available of food and water at Dhulikhel in the evening for overnight stay. After adjoining with Tibet by motorable road in 1965, Dhulikhel got a face lift and developed as a tourist destination. Dhulikhel is an ideal station to stop for overnight stay while going to Tibet and coming back to Kathmandu. Overnight at Dhulikhel Mountain Resort (L, D).

Early Morning, you will be taken to the Mt. Everest region by chartered helicopter where your breakfast is served in front of the Everest. The theme is ‘You see the Everest and it will see you having breakfast’. The Heli tour itself is a great experience as you can see some of the highest mountains on earth in a matter of an hour, in close proximity. The Chartered Helicopter flies over the terraced fields to Lukla, lands at Lukla airstrip for a while just to un-load extra fuel for the flight back to Kathmandu before heading up the valley towards Everest Base Camp. You will have some time (around 15 min) for photographs at the Everest base camp. You’ll also have some time to explore Mt. Everest and the surrounding snow massifs before flying towards Yeti Mountain Resort in Kongde where you will have your breakfast. Enjoy your experience of a lifetime breakfast right before the Mt. Everest and later, you’ll have a short transit to Lukla. After the helicopter is re-fuelled you’ll fly back to Kathmandu. This is one of the best ways to get closer to Everest as it requires less time and effort for the best breakfast you will ever have in your life…..!

The serenity and settings are overwhelming with the only distraction probably being the sighting of a spotted deer, a barking deer or monkeys who wander freely in the vicinity. Soft cushions of local Bermuda fairways, lush unyielding forests, winding streams, wandering hills and valleys that open to a holy river's plain. Cynical monkey's watch your progress. Shy spotted deer peer through the trees. The lofty Himalayas keep your score. A delight for recreational golfers and one of the pleasurable highlights of the professional tour in the region.
